community grants

The Salida Council for the Arts invites all Salida artists and creatives to apply for the upcoming Community Grants. Grants of up to $500 each are open to applicants seeking funding for local arts and cultural

based projects. Grants will be awarded quarterly, as funding permits.

Applicants may be individuals or organizations. Residency in Salida is not required, but the project must have a definable connection to the Salida Community and be supportive of the Council’s Mission to enrich the cultural life of our community by connecting them with artists.

These grants are for a specific creative project and not for an artist’s or organization’s operating budget. Use your imagination to create a project that will inspire, edify, and/or entertain the Salida community.
